Mostly night shot scenes with rain and streetlights, we do get some dusk scenes with a cemetery that are super cool.
It's surprisingly reserved in it's depiction of gore, and if you can stomach the practical effects, Tar Man is very well choreographed and that half-lady zombie they strap down....
Despite having all those things going for it, I really don't get much out of it.
